OVERDRIVE - It's worth your time to read this!! I promise.
"Lots of people like to go out to their local libraries to borrow books and other forms of media, sometimes to learn something new, and other times just to be entertained. But it's not always easy to make it to the library; it may be closed, the weather may be inclement, or some people may generally have difficulty getting around. Wouldn't it be nice if the library could come to you instead?
It's time for you to meet OverDrive. With OverDrive, you can borrow and enjoy materials from your local library or school's digital collection, including audiobooks, e-books, music tracks, and movies. And all that you need to access it is a valid library card.
So what exactly is OverDrive?
OverDrive is an online repository of audiobooks, e-books, videos, and music accessible to library patrons worldwide. The content available differs between each institution, and most borrowed materials are available to be enjoyed for a limited time through the OverDrive website or app.
What is the OverDrive app, then?
The OverDrive app is a program available for desktop computers, tablet computers, and smartphones. It allows access to the content of library materials that are borrowed from OverDrive and then downloaded onto your device, instead of being accessed directly on the OverDrive website.
How much does OverDrive cost?
Zero. Zilch. Nada. That's right, OverDrive is completely free to use.
You won't even be charged late fees, ever. That's because OverDrive automatically deletes any items that you've borrowed from your account once their lending periods are up. Or, if you've downloaded certain items (using programs like the OverDrive App or Adobe Digital Editions), they'll automatically deactivate on the services that you used to access them. This means that you won't ever have to remember to do it yourself, and so you'll never get fined." - Techsoup
So, take a look and see OverDrive fits your needs. If you need help, come see us at the library and we'll help get you started!
